A copy of the show, or maybe some good roots reggae. For coming down, I loved 73-74 Dark Stars or other epic spacy jams, also JGB circa 77-82.
Just remembered--Byrne/Eno's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts--funky and trippy. Great for that post-gig drive to the next stop...

I put on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts for a bunch of heads in the hotel after the 84 New Year's Show at the Civic (Etta James show) and got tons of crap from many, while a few dug it ("Help me somebody"). If you haven't heard it, check out the remix project:

Yeah--heads could get a wee bit myopic, especially after a show.
David Lindley and El Rayo X was another fave

I love David Lindley and El Rayo X! It was great when they and Los Lobos played with the boys at Laguna Seca

Back in the Bay the early to mid 80's, it seemed like we were either going to see the GD, the JGB at one of the Keystones, or Lindley & El Rayo at the Keystones or the Catalyst or someplace. So much dancin' and fun!
Ah, I grow nostalgic!

We might have crossed paths at a few shows, I used to work at The Stone in the early '80s, and went over around then to the Keystone Berkeley to see Cipollina and down to the Keystone Palo Alto to see The Undertones.

I wrote up a list of every live show I (can remember) seeing over the years-

Hey CPW--I'm certain we were at many shows together. Thanks for bringing back memories of long-forgotten venues like the I-Beam, the Oasis(!) and the Fab Mab. Also, I'd forgotten about bands like SVT and Pearl Harbour. What about Translator and Romeo Void? Man, between the GD/JGB scene and the punk/new wave scene, things were hoppin'.

hey Sactown Tom, yeah, I saw Translator and Romeo Void, just can't remember where!
Ben Bossi, Romeo Void's (sadly, late) sax player was in my 7th grade math class. We were the class cut-ups!

The Undertones rule! My Favourite band outta the early punk scene apart from the Clash.

I dig Kaleidoscope, too (David Lindley's first group) great songs like
Keep Your Mind Open, and I Found Out. Ever hear those?

Kaliedescope were great! I bought a used vinyl copy of Beacon From Mars at a KFJC record swap about 20 years ago--mint condition, not cheap! It has I found out on it.
